Large bottle 2016 rose

'It's not far short of perfect; the drinkability factor here is immensely high. Rose petals, cherries and strawberries, ripe but not overtly sweet, with spice and herb notes and – the coup de grace to any attempt at resistance – texture like velvet'

-Campbell Mattinson

Campbell Mattinson Halliday Wine Companion

The Barossa Valley has the perfect climate and ideal grape varieties to produce Rosé. It is a wine style that should be enjoyed fresh and chilled.

Having been amongst the first to lead the great Rosé revival, it has been interesting to watch the popularity of this wine style grow.

Bucking the notion that Rosé is an afterthought, our 'Prince of Pink' has a special place in our hearts & is crafted with a clear purpose. We create the lifted palate of bright, primary fruits by placing rosey-cheeked Grenache in its starring role. The considered additions of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon & Mataro add tannin and intriguing elements of spice & herbaceousness that have come to be this wine's hallmark.

Sourced from specific sites achieving perfect yields promoting prominent primary fruit while retaining appealing palate cleansing crispness.

Enjoy with: Friends, under a tree on a hot, summer's day. Not summer? Just turn up the heat & serve with Asian or Spanish inspired spicy or seafood dishes. Best served chilled.

2016 Vintage Tasting notes

Our 2016 Rosé is sophisticated and generous on the palate. Pale guava in colour with a body full of fresh peach, tangerine peel and a light touch of strawberry. Supple in texture with purity on the finish. Delightful, playful and stunning in the sunshine.

2016 Turkey Flat Rosé -Vive la rosé revolution

Fab colour for drinking in the sun. Smells gently spicy and redcurrant creamy, some raspberry fool too. Excellent lees nuttiness in the mouth, creamy and peppery, then dry and mouth-sucking. Aussie Tavel: and – surprise, surprise – will go great with the turkey. 91/100,

2016 Turkey Flat Rosé - a perfect aperitif

'One of the Barossa Valley's benchmark Rosés, always with a vintage variable blend of multiple varieties, and here clearly dominant in grenache at 95 percent of the makeup, 3 percent cabernet sauvignon and one percent each of shiraz and mature, together delivering a pale to mid-pink shine, enticing ripe and sticky-toffee-apple characters (without the sweetness), finishing crisply and very faintly off-dry. A perfect aperitif, in other words.

4.5 stars

Value: dependable

Best with: Pork belly
